To meet requirements for reduced emissions of pollutants, PEUGEOT has developed a new family of 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engines.
Due to the reduction in engine capacity, efficiency is increased and performance is maintained (power and torque). The PureTech engine delivers constant power over a wide usage range, while a high degree of acoustic comfort is maintained.
The 3-cylinder PureTech 110 S&S and 130 S&S 1.2L turbo engines were awarded the engine of the year title in 2015. Powerful, combining efficiency and driving pleasure, these engines are part of PEUGEOT's promise to provide new, rewarding and stimulating driving experiences.
The Atmospheric Engine
This new range of petrol engines, produced in France on the Trémery site (Moselle), was launched in 2012 on the PEUGEOT 208.
More compact, the new 3-cylinder PureTech engine reduces consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 25% compared to 4-cylinder engines with the same power, while maintaining optimum driving pleasure.
CO2 emissions start at on 99g per km. These engines are fitted to the PEUGEOT 108, 208, 2008 and 308. They are available in three specifications: 1.0L PureTech 68, 1.2L PureTech 82 and 1.2L PureTech 82 S&S (Stop&Start).
The Turbo Engine
The optimised design of this engine comes in two versions, normally aspirated and turbo-charged, sharing 40% of common parts.
The new generation turbo is highly efficient (240,000 rpm). The engine provides the best low speed torque / power compromise with 95% of torque available from 1500 to 3500 rpm.
A real technological challenge, this engine, produced in France in Douvrin (Pas-de-Calais), comes in 110 S&S and 130 S&S 1.2L PureTech versions.
It is fitted to the PEUGEOT 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 5008 and Partner Tepee.
